Close to my heart

Today I have been working with almost exclusively white colors at my layout. My thought was to let the white colors symbolize my dear Grandma, who are very closed to my heart, even through she died for several years ago. I was 14 years old and loved her very much, she was my hero.
Except for some photos, I have one little thing left from her. A tiny little bird, heavy of metal and painted with white colors. It's nothing remarkable about it....but its close to my heart.
So the title of my layout this week is "Close to my heart"

This little bird had my grandma beside her bedroom window, and when I made her a visit I always wanted to hold it in my hand and play with it.
I have written my journal on a tag and hide it behind the photo. You can see a bit of it behind the tulle and flowers.

When I made this layout I only used one pattern paper, a beautiful paper from Theresa Collins "Travel Ledger". The rest of the layout is created with tulle, fabric tape with fabric roses and fabric lace.

I have embossed the texture of the title and distressed it with some ink.

Se you next time!
Have a nice scrapping day.
